CBHS Annual Fund

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund goes directly to the operating budget at CBHS. It allows us to maintain a tuition that is inclusive to all socioeconomic levels, which continues our mission of promoting religious, ethnic, and economic diversity.  Education occurs inside and outside the walls of CBHS, and the Annual Fund acts as a bridge between what it cost to educate a Brother’s Boy and what tuition actually provides.  The Annual Fund also supports the various activities, arts, and athletics that our Brothers' Boys participate in daily.


Tuition:                                                                                     $13,500

Fees:                                                                                          $1,630

Total Cost of Attendance:                                         $15,130

Annual Fund Support:                                                    $2,403

Total Cost of Education:                                              $17,533


2017-2018 Annual Fund Goals

The 2016-2017 Fiscal Year was a great year for the Annual Fund with it generating over $880,000 from the gifts of 88% of CBHS families and 11.88% of alumni.  We cannot thank all who gave in 2016-2017 enough for your incredible generosity and your support of CBHS and our mission. 

The 2017-2018 goal for the Annual Fund is $900,000, which would be the highest in the history of CBHS!  We also have set the goal of 85% parent participation as well as 15% alumni participation.  We hope you consider supporting the Annual Fund as we strive to continue the rich tradition of excellence at CBHS!  Amazing things ARE happening here!

Annual Fund FAQs

What does the Annual Fund support?

-The Annual Fund bridges the "gap" between what tuition and fees cover and the "Brothers' Boy Experience".  The Annual Fund also supports all of our arts, extracurricular activities, and athletic programs.

What is the 2K for $1M Annual Fund Initiative?

-The 2,000 for $1,000,000 Annual Fund Initiative (2K for $1M) was launched in 2017 in an effort to grow the CBHS Annual Fund to $1,000,000 as well as grow our monthly recurring giving base.  This initiative was launched to show there are strength in numbers and through convenient, automatically drawn gifts, you can make a significant impact on each and every Brothers' Boy!

When will I be asked to give and when do I need to send my gift?

-The Annual Fund operates during the CBHS fiscal year, which is July 1 through June 30.  We ask for your support at any time you feel that is most appropriate for you.  

I’m a parent so why are you asking me to give when I pay tuition?

-Due to the "gap" that exists between what tuition and fees cover and what it truly costs to be a Brothers' Boy, we ask our parents to support the Annual Fund in an effort to bridge that "gap".  We understand that families are blessed to give at different levels, and our parents support enables us to provide a complete "Brothers' Boy Experience" inside and outside the walls of CBHS.  

As an alumni, how will I know my gift is going to where I want?

-The Annual Fund serves as the fundraising arm for all of our arts, extracurricular activities, and athletic programs.  Alumni, parents, family, and friends can make a gift to the Annual Fund and leave it undesignated to be placed to the greatest area of need.  Gifts can also be designated to any of the programs our Brothers' Boys are engaged in.  This allows our supporters to know exactly where their gift is making an impact!

Why not just raise tuition?

In continuing the mission of CBHS and St. John Baptist De Lasalle, the tuition is set to allow for individuals of all socio-economic background the opportunity to receive an education at CBHS.  

Is my gift tax-deductible?

Yes, gifts to CBHS are 100% tax-deductible.  CBHS Wave Club members are asked to consult their tax adviser in determining which portion of their CBHS Wave Club donation is tax-deductible.  ***This is for individuals who received sport season or all-season passes.***

How much should we give?

-We ask that you give what in appropriate for you.  We understand that everyone is blessed to give at certain levels, but we do ask that everyone supports and aids us in our mission.  Every gift matters and no gift is too small!!

Who can take advantage of matching gifts?

-If you are interested in taking advantage of matching gifts, please contact your employer's human resources department to see if CBHS is eligible for matching gifts.

Can we make a non-cash contribution to the Annual Fund?

-Yes, In-Kind gifts are welcomed for all of our programs.  If you have interest in supplying a direct need for one of our programs through a GIK, please contact John Goode at jgoode@cbhs.org or (901) 261-4927.

Can we restrict our gift to a certain project or purpose?

-Yes, you can designate your Annual Fund gift to the program of your choosing.  For a list of programs offered at CBHS, please direct your mouse here

Can we make our gift in honor or in memory of another person? Will that person and/or the family know we've made the gift?

-Yes, gifts to the CBHS Annual Fund in honor of someone special to you or in memory of a loved one is a great way to support CBHS as well as pay tribute to those who have meant so much to you. 

Can we make our gift anonymously?

-Yes, if you would like to remain anonymous in our Annual Fund reporting, please indicate this to us on your donation, and the CBHS Development Office will take the appropriate steps in maintaining your privacy.
